Stephen Merchant? Stephen Merchant! He's on the show tonight! Stephen is the long-time comedy partner of Ricky Gervais. You saw his work initially in the original British version of The Office, which he co-wrote and co-directed with Ricky. Then, he moved from behind the camera to play Ricky's agent in the hilarious Extras, and has since co-hosted the radio show (and animated TV series) The Ricky Gervais Show. Hopefully tonight he'll talk a little about all these great projects, but also about his latest, called "An Idiot Abroad" which chronicles his friend Karl Pilkington on a tour of the Seven Wonders of the World. If you've followed Merchant's work, you know how hilarious this is, without even seeing it. Tune in tonight to learn more about this man behind (alongside) the Gervais!
